Cubs for Breakfast

Cumann Daorchluiche Cubs na Chicago

Wednesday, January 19, 2005

Of course, there was a flurry of activity yesterday, with arbitration-eligible players facing an offer deadline, and Jim Hendry signing yet another reliever to a minor-league contract. Relevant headlines below. The Tribune (Reg. Req.) also had a reporter track down Magglio Ordonez's surgeon in Austria, to get the low-down on the down low (uh, info about the knee). Oh, and back to relief pitchers, the Baltimore Sun has a one-liner referring to the Cubs' continued interest in trading for Jorge Julio.
